I would like to congratulate my students who have come to the end of this long journey. I am reminded at this time of something Henry David Thoreau had to say about achieving one’s goals, which seems to me appropriate at this particular time and place. He said, ““What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.”
